A Note on This Beer
There are two types of morning people:
First, there are the Early Birds. They wake up with the sun, run a few miles before 7 AM, and always cash in on those breakfast specials.
Then, there are the Night Owls, who stay up so late that day turns into night and back into day again. They frequent 24-hour diners and sip on espresso martinis or Irish Coffees as their preferred nightcap.
Today’s Ante Meridiem - Blend No. 3 - 2019 Bourbon Barrel-Aged Brown Ale is for that second group — the midnight oil-burners, the nightwalkers, and the lovers of late-night.
Aged in award-winning Bourbon Barrels with locally-roasted coffee, Ugandan vanilla beans, and maple syrup, this boozy 13.5% ABV Brown Ale sips like a decadent, top-shelf Irish Coffee.
Heck, it’s so masterfully layered in rich flavors of caramel, silky-sweet vanilla, and freshly pulled espresso wrapped around a huge ABV, it’s all you need to elevate the evening to a new level of late-night decadence.
You might even agree with one fan on Untappd who calls this 4.20 UT-rated sipper, “the best Brown Ale I’ve ever had!”
That’s because this praiseworthy brew comes from the Dark Beer masters at Atlanta’s Monday Night Brewing.
They’ve made a name for themselves in the Southern craft scene with their unapologetically boozy, devilishly smooth beers. In fact, their deft handling of this Brown behemoth is exactly the kind of skill that earned them a spot on Vinepair’s list of the 10 Best Breweries of 2018 AND the 50 Best Beers of 2019!
So, don’t sleep on Ante Meridiem - Blend No. 3 — instead, grab a bottle, call up your Dark Beer lovin’ buddies and awaken their palates with this hard-to-find, world-class Imperial Brown Ale.
Rated 4.20 on Untappd; 97/100 on Craft Beer & Brewing; 93/100 on The Beer Connoisseur
